Online Workshops: The Art and Science of Storytelling (July 2021 - summer edition!)


6-15 July 2021 | Online (zoom), Czech Republic

Do you want to learn about the art and science of STORYTELLING and how to create and share STORIES effectively? Register to my online workshops, specially designed for educators and trainers with theory, exercises, interaction and fun! (10th Edition)

Creating and sharing stories is a gift innate to all of us humans. Join these workshops and find out more. We will share inspiration from successful examples, put them in practice with individual and group exercises, and share tips on how to build stories to create engaging activities, inspire learning and promote the change we want to see in the world. 

These online workshops are designed for a smaller group (around 18 people) and will involve a lot of direct and personal interaction. Camera and microphone will be recommended all the time. Don't expect long webinars and talks, these activities are super hands-on and direct. Our work will include bits of theory, loads of group and individual exercises, challenges and games, sharing and reflection, and a variety of interactive digital tools to make our sessions more dynamic and engaging. 

The course is aimed at trainers and educators, but is also very suitable for professionals in the fields of communication, advertisement, creatives, artists and topic enthusiasts in general!  

I offer two parallel classes, afternoon (4 pm) and evening (8 pm). The ideal way to experience the course is to register always for the same time of the day, so you will be working with the same people and it's ideal for group dynamics. The content and program will be the same. 

The program will be a bit more compact since this is a summer class!

July 6th, h 16.00-18.30 and 20.00-22.30 CET - How and Why do we create stories? (story structures with famous examples, why do we share stories + the deeper impact of storytelling, theory and tips for creativity, crafting and sharing stories, small group work to create and share short stories, improv exercises);

July 8th, h 16.00-18.30 and 20.00-22.30 CET- How do stories shape us and the world around us? (to understand deeply the encoded messages in the stories that surround us, how they shape society, and how to own our stories - the Basic Human Values theory by Shalom H. Schwartz and George Lakoff's use of language for framing - exercises and case studies);

July 13th, h 16.00-18.30 and 20.00-22.30 CET - How to use stories for personal growth (the Hero's Journey story mega-structure and how to incorporate Rites of Passage in education and to achieve transformation; the power of sharing and community building with the Way of Council, and tips on how to lead such activities);

July 15th, h 16.00-18.30 and 20.00-22.30 CET - Engagement, humor and comedy (how to create punchlines and deliver them, theory inputs on what is "funny", tips and exercises to keep an audience engaged and be confident storytellers, examples from live and recorded stand-up comedy, writing exercises and jokes, jokes, jokes).

You can register for one or more workshops.
Of course, the full series is recommended because the topics are all interconnected and the group dynamics will get stronger.

Since April 2020 I have had more than 250 participants. 

"But people are tired of all this online learning!"

Wait until you read what these people have to say. Some of the feedback:

  • "a great balance between game, mystery, self-reflection and tribe sharing. Looking forward to the next session!"
  • "this method of workshop is extremely valuable and I would love if it can be ongoing, like a school or a club which will be sustainable"
  • "who would have said that I am going to enjoy sitting around the fire in a zoom meeting! I appreciate more and longer time for group work and the magical atmosphere"
  • "At first, I was a bit reticent on how it would be online. Carmine did an awesome job. He made sure that we as participants interacted with each other and kept a positive and upbeat energy throughout! I really take a lot from this workshop".
  • "every week I feel more and more like we need to all go for a drink after the workshop"
